Cyberpunk 2077 – City Center District

The center of Night City is the largest district in the game, and as you might imagine it is dominated by the corps that run the place. Alongside the wealthy is the “the quintessence of luxury,” and it seems likely that the player will be able to buy some upscale fashion in this part of town.

Home of Arasaka?

As the main adversary of Keanu Reeves’ character Johnny Silverhand, the Arasaka Corporation will no doubt be a major antagonist in the game, and in the tabletop game their American Division HQ has historically been in the City Center district. We can also see a large building in what appears to be the City Center in one of the screenshots released by CD PROJEKT RED.

The Arasaka logo can be seen on the building to V’s right.

However, the building we see doesn’t quite seem to match the description given in the Cyberpunk 2020 tabletop game:

At 130 stories, it is the tallest building in Night City, and is clearly visible from most areas in clear weather. It is almost two separate buildings, with the twin towers being structurally connected only below the 20th floor. Above that, the narrow (20m) gap between the towers is bridged regularly by closed tunnels with exposed walkways on top. Above the 90th floor, the tunnels have no exposed walkways or windows. The towers are featureless surfaced in black glass and steel, imparting a rather sinister look. The logo and name are on a black marble plaque that stands by the walkway to the main entrance. There are heliports and AV-4 pads on both tower roofs, and a restricted subterranean parking and loading area. Each tower has its own internal elevators and stairways.

We will have to wait and see if Arasaka has been overtaken as the corp with the tallest skyscraper in Night City, or if their HQ is somewhere else in the large City Center District.
